Lensbaby Announces Twist 60

Lensbaby has announced the upcoming release of the Twist 60, a metal-bodied non-tilting lens that captures a sharp subject with a swirly blurred background and enhanced vignette. 

“Twist 60 embodies our love of old lenses and their unique ways of helping photographers discover creative possibilities,” said Craig Strong, Lensbaby co-founder and chief creative officer. “True to an 1840 design by Joseph Petzval, this lens reveals striking separation between subjects and their background, a quality that modern lens designs lack.”
